Summer Solstice Community Ride

Summertime, summertime, sum sum summertime! We're so excited to roll with our cycling community again!

This will be our first large group ride since 2019, so for our first stop, we're taking in the sunset views at Con & Bob's Lake Side Bar.  The riverside back lot of this fine establishment is one of our favorite spots to catch a glimpse of mother natures crepuscule and to play a few rounds of u-lock toss.  From there, we will embark on a paved back roads journey along the northside of town with added stops at a couple of our favorite watering holes. We will end our ride at the Mathias Mitchell Public square.  This is a 21+ event.

Camp Shutout

As soccer coaches who have dedicated their careers to the goalkeeper position, we are excited about the opportunities and challenges that this year’s Camp Shutout brings. We understand that the goalkeeper is still the most neglected player on a team. While camp settings have made strides to remedy that problem, not all camps provide the most benefit for every player. This camp is designed to push goalkeepers to new levels and help maximize their potential.

This camp is open to goalkeepers of all levels and abilities; this is a great introduction to serious goalkeeping. The camp maintains all of the great features of past Camp Shutouts, including a low keeper/coach ratio and interaction with high-level college GKs.

We are also excited to offer the 19th year of Camp Shutout The Advanced Sessions! Our intention is to create the ultimate in goalkeeper training. Whether you are entering your first year of high school or your first year of college this camp will help you attain your potential. The Advanced Sessions will teach the fundamentals techniques at a quicker pace than Camp Shutout, thus allowing more time for advanced skills like those necessary at the high school, collegiate, and professional levels. If you are a high school-aged goalkeeper and are serious about goalkeeping, Camp Shutout The Advanced Sessions is the camp for you!

Ride Across Wisconsin Rally

2021: Choose Your Own Adventure!
July 30-Aug 2, 2021
225 Miles: 4 days to ride

Once again, we will revisit our glorious route across the central area of the state.  But, we have eliminated the mass start and large group gatherings that increase the potential of spreading the COVID-19 virus. The upside?  Even more ways to “RAW”.  Grab a small group of friends and challenge yourself to complete the ride in one day. Or, take your time and complete the ride in 2, 3 or even 4 days. 

In 2021, RAW will be half the price - with twice as many days to complete your ride.  The course will be marked, and SAG and technical assistance will be available, but the experience will be largely self-guided.

This ride goes through and stops in Plover and Amherst!
